  1. Monkey Island 1 & 2 are now available as is *checks notes* Pit Fighter?!. They've also launched in Australia. Seemingly their social media lackey is otherwise occupied as none of these things have been mentioned outside of Discord.
  2. Booo! I thought it was an update too.
  3. That irked me too. Then I found out he was voiced by one of the co-directors/co-writers and seemingly nobody wanted to tell him it sounded terrible.
  4. I would have thought so too, but that's the MS version in the video. As for why they're not using Amiga versions, why Gods isn't on there (but who cares about that, eh readers) and what a volume 2 could contain...
  5. I have no suggestions, but I'm enjoying seeing what others are coming up with, not being aware of most of them.
  6. Insomniac own the IP, but Microsoft funded and published the first game so presumably retain the rights to that
  7. They're working on a sequel to AVP apparently. Possibly with the ghost of Giger leading the art direction.
  8. Joe Beasley gets a second series
  9. I was thinking this can't be right. Surely they're still churning out straight to video/DVD/Blu-ray/streaming specials, if nothing else. I know they're still doing that with Scooby Doo. Turns out the last one was The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age SmackDown, released in 2015. And that was the first one since 2001. And if this clip is anything to go by, it's probably awful. Stone tablets with screens ? How does that work then? It also turns out there already is/was a reboot of sorts that has seemingly only been aired in the UK and Canada (surely you've seen it @Capwn). I think the phrase "looks like it was made in Flash" is overused, but this really does look like it was made in Flash. And looks utter shite. So yeah, kids might have some awareness of it, but not as much as I thought.
  10. It doesn't hurt to remind people. I'd actually forgotten about it myself when I initially saw the topic title. I see there are few recent news articles about it from the likes of screenrant and nintendolife, so seemingly it got missed the first time around by those too. From what I remember someone on 8chan assembled it from the decomp of Mario 64.
  11. It's almost been available for a year now, so it's managed to avoid being pulled by Ninty so far. https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/316108-mario-64-pc-port/&do=findComment&comment=12683063
  12. I thought the article you linked to made it pretty clear what it was. The Kickstarter, less so. In my opinion they could have done without the PieReader at this point (these really are awful names) as the mention of hardware just confuses the message. The opening line-up of games is perfectly good enough for a free service to start with. They could have brought the PieReader in later. Having the ability to use roms makes it pretty redundant anyway.
  13. BFI & Radio Times TV festival talk with Coogan, Fielding and the brothers Gibbons
  14. He tried to, but it ended up getting shelved as he was working on other projects and Fox weren't thrilled with what he'd come up with. I was reminded of it recently as some concept art surfaced online.
  15. It's not a machine/console. It's a browser-based service like Antstream. You use the PieReader to prove you own a game that isn't already on the service, although curiously it also acts as a hub to play games locally (if they reach the stretch target). Presumably it still streams to do that though.
  16. "We need a photo of some arcade machines" "Close enough"
  17. It's a licensing issue apparently. From their Discord earlier:
  18. Even if it means stripping the license out, it needs Micro Machines on it
  19. That was the revamped 3D Realms. The Apogee name got sold off to one of Miller's mates a while back. Apogee have already been publishing though; they released a tarted up version of Crystal Caves last year.
